Almost a year after releasing his previous single, Kenny Chesney will return to country radio on July 12 with “Tip of My Tongue.”
Co-penned by Kenny, Ross Copperman and Ed Sheeran, “Tip of My Tongue” will be the first taste of Kenny’s upcoming 18th studio album, which will be released via Blue Chair/Warner Music Nashville.
“It’s funny how a figure of speech can lead you to all kinds of places,” says Kenny. “You start talking, and words fall out, and anything can happen. When you go in and write on any given day, the chemistry is what it is. When the idea fell out, we all just laughed and went, ‘Well, what can we do with that?’ I’ve written so much with Ross [Copperman], that’s always easy. He brought Ed [Sheeran] in, and he is such a great writer . . . The way creativity works in creative people is so different, but it’s always exciting. As a co-write with a new writer, it’s one of the most fun sessions I’ve done in a long time. I get why people love working with him.”
No released date has been announced for the new album, which will be helmed by longtime producer Buddy Cannon.
“Tip of My Tongue” arrives on July 12 at 5 a.m. CT.
